The Law of Lumina

Emma Boone thought her dream job as the new Chief of Security on Lumina Station was going to be easy.

She didn’t expect corruption, incompetence, and murder.

Lumina was a “Small-Town” space station orbiting above an isolated, quiet, agri-colony planet specializing in exporting wheat, corn, bourbon, and a few other interesting, unusual commodities. When she took the job, she thought a small station with a tiny population of just over 4,000 people would be quiet compared to her last post.

Boone had barely unpacked her duffle before it all went wrong. She had thought way out here, there would be less death, and she would be able to keep her secrets.

She quickly found this far out on the edge of the universe; the only law was the law you brought with you.

Who could she trust? More accurately…

What could she trust?

It was an adventure!

 We had a blizzard and lost power for 3 days and 2 nights. Temps in the teens at night. We had a gas fireplace so we were comfy. No writing got done though!

It's a good day to be a writer...

We have about 4 inches so far. Looks like there will be 8 to 10 total before the day is over. That's fine. I don't need to leave the house until the 15th...
